Just bought an '01 EX Coupe 5 speed, 4 cylinder. Wasn't really looking for an Accord. I was actually looking for something in a hatchback/wagon as it would suit my needs best. My needs are...... Comfortable highway cruiser Better than 30 mpg highway Plenty of room for tools/parts. This will be used for my field engineer job Reliable I considered G1 and 2 insights, CRZs, focus hatchbacks, Mazda 3s and a few others. I drove a G1 Insight but I came to the conclusion that I might not be happy spending 0 hours in it in a day. Same applies with the G2 and fit. I stumbled across this car on CL and decided to have a look. Here is the story on it. Owned by a HS kid. He bought it about a year ago. It was in very nice stock shape, 101k. Paid 2700. He then did most of the typical maintenance along with a performance SS exhaust. he put over 2k into it. Then a woman rear ended him. Not really much of a hit, but it doesn't take much to total a 16 year old car. Here is a pic of the carnage. Well, once I figure out how to post a pic, I will Anyhow, he decided to sell it. I think he's nuts as it is an easy fix. Oh well, it's his money. I got it for 1200 bucks, his full asking. Didn't have the heart to try to beat him down more. He's lost enough on it.
